Commercial Heat Treater In Midwest USA Adds 4,000 lb/hr Mesh Belt Furnace

“Can-Eng Furnaces International, Ltd. (CAN-ENG) has recently been awarded a contract to deliver a second high-capacity Mesh Belt Heat Treatment Furnace line to a commercial heat treater in the Midwest United States. CAN-ENG completed commissioning of a 4000lb/hr Mesh Belt Furnace System for this customer in 2020. This duplicate 4000 lb/hr high-capacity Mesh Belt Furnace line is to be installed along side the previous furnace line in the recently expanded plant.

These custom engineered continuous atmosphere heat treating systems feature an increase in usable hearth area to provide high-volume processing when running products requiring carbon diffusion and lighter belt loading, as they will be used primarily for processing including Carbonitriding and Carburizing. The furnaces are capable of a maximum throughput capacity of up to 4000 lb/hr neutral hardening each.

Both furnace lines reportedly feature; a computerized controlled automated bin dumping and vibratory part feeder system, dunk and spray pre-washer, protective atmosphere-controlled mesh belt hardening system, oil quench, dunk and spray post wash system, forced recirculation temper furnace, in-line post cooling system, and CAN-ENG’s PETTM Level 2 SCADA system. By integrating CAN-ENG’s Level 2 Automation, the end user also has access to tracking of products’ status, detailed process data for continuous process improvements, comprehensive equipment diagnostics, cost analysis, and inventory management which is required by many demanding customers.”
